Review: DC Comics Presents # 29

November 11th, 2008

A review from Mike.

Superman and the Spectre
Written by: Lein Wein
Art by: Jim Starlin and Romeo Tanghal
Letterer: John Costanza
Colorist: Jerry Serpe
Editor: Julius Schwartz

Summary: This is continued from the previous issue in which Supergirl punctured WarWorld at super speed and was lost. In this issue Superman decides to try and pick up her trail and speeds faster than anyone has ever traveled. This is why the Spectre appears and stops the man of steel. The Spectre states: “You were traveling far faster than you ever had before my friend, shattering barrier after barrier until only one remained… That golden veil beyond which no living man may trespass.” Spectre showed his power and pretty much swatted Superman like he was a fly for several panels. Eventually Spectre retrieved Supergirl himself and returned her to Superman.

Review: Solid issue but not as good as the last issue. B-

Whatever Happened to Dr. Mid-Nite?

Dr. Mid-Nite’s goggles are on the fritz and he has to contact Dr. Gordon Ogilvy to repair them. While on the phone a character that looks a lot like Matt Murdock (named Tim) kills Dr. Gordon Ogilvy for his technology. Dr. Mid-Nite has to solve the mystery and defeat Tim.

Review: An interesting story by slightly above average C+
